The first Methodist meetings in Fairfield were led by circuit rider, Jesse Herbert in 1940.  The first church was built in 1848 on the Southeast corner of B and Washington streets.  After a congregational split which lasted seven years, a new building was constructed at 201 North Court Street.  That structure was replaced by the current building and dedicated April 13, 1924.
